#2161 new defect

Documentation tooltips are very irritating

Reported by: autarch Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS Fund Me
Component: documentation Version: 2.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


The fact that every div in the docs has a "title" attribute causes my browser (Chrome 23) to show a tooltip no matter where my mouse is on the page. This can be quite irritating as the tooltips often end up obscuring the text I'm trying to read.

If the title is being used for accessibility purposes maybe there's some other attribute that could be used?

If this is just sort of happening because that's what xsltproc does, please consider disabling it.

Never noticed it before, but now you mention it I see it in firefox but I rather like that behavior except that it seems to show the same title on every link of the page instead of what the link is about.

I also notice our older docs don't have this behavior 1.4.2 for example, so must be something introduced with the new buildbot perhaps because she's using a newer version of docbook or our general monkeying around with our docbook setup. I'll see if I can trace when this started happening.

okeedoke just had Debbie rebuild the 1.4.2 docs

and it has tooltips, but the old one doesn't.

I'm not sure if the old was built by Hudson or Paul when he was releasing.

I'm not quite sure why they are different aside from revision number thing.

strk, pramsey — you're setup locally to build docs right? Can you check and see if yours generates mouseovers on links?
